Interesting Experience
YurkShan_N, Aug 2019
The meeting place is a bit difficult to find for visitors, but the trip is interesting. We are all exciting while walking through those narrow long tunnels. The guild was good and gave us enough information to understand the underground world of Napoli. Worth to visit!

Thanks for your review! See you soon! :)
Bad description; nothing beyond basic tour.
CaptMikeH, Mar 2019
Interesting, but just buy ticket at the door. No mention of pizza or anything else. Had to double-check to see we were even on the right tour.
Not properly advertised
Thomas S, Oct 2018
There are two Underground Tours in Naples, both starting from the same Piazza. The above picture is used by the other tour as a lead picture. It is not seen on the tour sold by this presentation. Indeed, we were sold a tour including a pizza only to discover the pizza location was not open on Wednesday. To make matters worse, the on-site tour operator sent us across town to another pizza place, which was also closed on Wednesday. Based on the problems, Viator did refund the tour cost. Thank you - but others should be aware of the misrepresentation in the tour itself and the pizza place being closed on Wednesday.

No optional transport and no pizza.Very unhsppy with the arrangement,there was no possibility to get a voucher for the pizza

Heidi O, May 2018
Delightfully fun tour and worth seeing. There are a lot of steps and some tight passages, so be aware that you need to be comfortable climbing all the steps, okay in the dark and able to get through tight spots. The only thing I would change is that our group was right in front a group of school children. The children were loud at times and would push ahead to border our group - making it hard to hear our guide at times or enjoy the setting. I suggest that if school groups are going, there be more space between them and other groups - also maybe they need more chaperones to ensure the students are respectful of others.

Our tour guide Maria was excellent. Well worth going to see the history of the old Naples and to hear the stories, especially the Nuns.
Well organised and very interesting...
JULIE S, Dec 2017
Well organised and very interesting. Our guide was excellent. This is a very popular tour and there were lots of other groups going round at the same time as ours. The lighting was atmospheric and gave a real sense of what it would have been like to work and live in the tunnels and caverns. Really enjoyed it.

Amazing! Gives another dimension to Naples! Highly recommend this tour. Just beware of 120 steps each way to climb!

Chris, Nov 2017
We all had a great time being shown round by an informative and excellent guide. My only slight disapointment was the end at the remains of the theatre as I had thought there was more of it left but there is only the below under stage rooms and corridors, a model of the old theatre and what remains would have been helpful in the last room of the tour. It is fascinating to see how the People of Naples have adapted and merged there working and living space with the old Theatre and tunnels. I highly recommend a visit this was one of my best tours of our trip.

William P, Oct 2017
I didn't know what to expect when I first read about this tour but I can say it was awesome. The adventure of exploring a system first built by the Greeks over 2000 years ago was beyond description. Our tour guide was well informed and nice as well.

Margaret M, Oct 2017
We were on a cruise and booked this tour on line and not through the ship. We were met at the port by Dinneround and brought to the tour. The driver was on time and we went to the head of the line when we got there. The tour itself lasted about 1-1/2 hours. The history was very interesting. There were some tight spots but it was worth it. PM

Greatly informative and the guide...
Tasha_K, Oct 2017
Greatly informative and the guide from Napoli Sotterranea is brilliant. However this is not actually a Viator tour. You can simply walk in and buy a ticket on the spot as long as you arrive before they start their tours.

It was interesting but I wouldn't necessarily call it a must. We had a good tour guide and we enjoyed it.

If you're in Naples this is a must. It's amazing to see this side of Naples. The guide makes this tour interesting, informative and entertaining. We loved this tour and whilst still on holiday recommended it to other families.

Neci S, Sep 2017
The visual aspects were fascinating, all that history from the ancient Roman to the more recent Second World War. Unfortunately our guide was extremely hard to understand and we weren't the only ones in the group who had difficulty.
